This pioneering book explores the role of the Internet in the rapid development of a novel form of science education: authentic student-scientist partnerships (or "SSPs"). Contributors present examples of different projects and programs for the K-12 classroom enabled or enhanced by the Internet and other technological advances. Such student-scientist collaborations as the GLOBE Program, Project Aquanaut, Earthwatch and Mars Exploration are presented in detail.
'The broad spectrum of contributors and the innovative perspectives revealed in the case studies make this book an invaluable resource for teachers and an exemplary tool for students.' John F. 'Kip' Perkins III, Ten Acre Country Day School, Wellesley, MA.
